Enough to buy the jeans - not enough to pay for the postage

Has any kind of market developed around the remaining US made Cone denim LVC? I'm not one for buying for the sake of reselling, but I have a BNWT 1966 pair as well as a 1915 Golden Handshake 501 that was only washed and worn once. I'm 50/50 on reselling the '66 pair because I'm not 100% certain they will fit well enough to un-deadstock them.

Did Levi's make all the 1971's with a 32" leg? The pair above and the pair illustrated on the Levi's website are both 32 length which would make them a pass for the majority of peeps who would want to wear them.

I had a pair of 36*34 in cart for the 1971 Golden Ticket but decided against buying. So there's 34in length jeans being produced. The US and EU websites differ in stocked length for the 1966 Harajuku release. US seems to stock the longer lengths but I don't remember seeing 36in length ones for both releases.

I think L34 is usually the longest leg available in Japan.

Heyo! I have a pair of unworn Cone LVC 55, Size W30/L34. Maybe kind of looking to trade up a size or two... hopefully another Cone LVC pair, but I'm open to others.

Spot the difference - big E little, e and R tabs from some 1955s S1 2006, 643M (?Taylor Togs).

It appears that the 1971s were only made in 32 leg for Europe - Japan/USA appears to have the option of 34. Why?

Anyone know whether any of the big e golden ticket jeans have been found? I'd guess the European release is the last 100 pairs or so?

I think the bulk of buyers were flippers thus no one has removed the foil to check?

Everyone thinks they’re too valuable to wear as they believe they can resell them for at least 10x retail price. The limited edition left hand twill pairs befell a similar fate. Who is prepared to pay that much simply because they’re ‘limited edition’?!

It’s bloody ridiculous. Everything that’s created is limited. Nobody’s making infinite of anything, not even paper clips!

It’s a great way of firing up demand and some brands have made a business model out of it (thinking Supreme). And for the customer it’s all for either clout chasing or smugness - neither of which are admirable traits. There will be a few that are LVC collectors or really want a 71 repro, and that’s respectable.

Rant over. I’ll get off my soapbox now.

It's all about marketing and creating hype. LVC is no worse than the sneaker brands creating hype.

Now if people really want limited edition they should buy my circa ‘94 BNWT pre-lawsuit Go West jeans. Possibly the only raw pair in that size in existence. I’ll entertain any offers north of £10k :laugh2:

Damit Friedman, I'm going to start wearing mine :D - you do know they're a pain in the **** to button-up unless you're left-handed?

The more cynical might say that they made too many L32 1976s,  got muddled up with the tabs and had to think of a way of getting rid of them. I think the tabs on my S1 2006 Taylor Togs pairs above were a mistake. They were on the shelf in American Classics and I bought 2 pairs of each tab all at the same time.  They are well put together and the seams are tightly sewn with lots of wrinkling. I have worn a pair with a little e tab into the ground.

^ I’m not quite sure what you’re saying here - are you implying that the 1971s are the same as the 1976s but with a different tab and labelled differently? I think the 1971s are supposed to be a slimmer cut.

As I have neither cut in LVC I can't say. Funnily enough, a pair which I had from 1971 were more generously cut than a pair from 1969.

Gave my three-pleat a hand wash last week as the weather was sunny.

It's been interesting wearing this alongside, for instance, the TCB 20s - although they're 40 years apart in Levi's terms the fabric isn't that different. I love the shading on the TCB, as in the range of colours. I've also been wearing some Levi's Lot 1 with Nihon Menpu fabric. I think the Cone 1880s fabric, in terms of texture, is so far ahead it's unreal. Much much more subtle, rather than pronounced bumps and slubs there are myriad small variations in the fabric.

 

I prefer the dye job on the TCB in terms of looks, as I like high contrast, but I think we'll look back on this era of Cone fabrics as being pretty unique

. It's certainly much better than the Kurabo fabric replicating the same era - I am not sure if the pre-20s fabric for current LVC is from Kaihara, i'd be very interested to see their interpretation of the same fabric.

All these shots are a bit pale, my Fuji X100 doesn't seem to get denim colours right, unlike my wife's sony RX (which I, um, dropped and killed).

Finally, here's the 1880s natural indigo with a proper camera. Very dense and scrunchy with lots of fluff. They're about a shade darker in real life with more of a red-purple hue.

As you can see, the busted seam is very close to my knee, then swings round to line up with my laces at the bottom. the most leg-twist I've had from a first wash, ever.

Cultizm has a Sale on some LVC models, still some Cone left in uneven sizes ;) (at least the german website)
Around 165€ for a pair, mostly small sizes as far as I've seen, though.

^ Jeezus. That is a stunningly low amount of fading for four months of wear. Do you work a desk job, or are they just veeeeeery slow faders?

That's pretty typical fading for four months. Those jeans don't go down easy.

      Hello guys, It's my first post here. I am Denimseeker (ig: denim_seeker).
      I have been collecting vintage jackets for a while, esp. denim jackets. Feeling that the denim world deserves a better guide for Levi's denim jackets so I tried my best to make one. The guide is much more complicated than those you see on other websites (i.e. Heddel's or Long John etc) so you might need some basic understanding to read it. This guide is open for comments and if you have any questions please don't hesitate to let me know. This guide is still a work in progress and would be wonderful if everybody in the denim world can contribute.
      That being said, enjoy!

      Hi All,
      see you again on 2020 and I wish you all happy new year. this time I need your opinion about Levi's BIG E that I found at flea market few days ago. I found an old Levi's vest (its a jacket once before), this vest do not have a cinch back, I also cannot see the number on the back of button, tag was unavailable. only rivets, red tab and selvedge that I can see clearly. here's I send you the details. Hopefully someone here can give me an opinion regarding this Levi's. Any opinions are welcome, I do appreciated.
      please let me know.

      I checked the Encyclopedia thread and only one Levi's link didn't give a 404 error, so here goes nothing. I should add that a lot of the center patch jeans actually aren't vintage (at least the ones I'm looking for) and date back to around 2006. I've talked with Levi's support a handful of times and got nothing out of it. I'm trying to figure out what all the center patch pairs are. I know I haven't quite figured them all out, but I've found a few, though they seem very hard to come by, and obviously aren't currently in production. I'd really like to find a pair with the white "Quality Never Goes Out of Style" center patch. Something tells me I don't have the ideal wording, and if I knew exactly what to type, I could probably find a plethora of those jeans. When I google 519's, I have to block the words extreme or skinny (add a - in front of whatever word you don't want to see in the results) or I get mostly brand new pairs of 519's. Here's what I know so far:
       
      This pair, which can be seen clearly in the first photo and on this store page (which has other photos of the same pair) appears to be 519 slim fit. However, they don't seem to be the normal 519 slim fit. One site I looked at called them "519 slim fit side adjusters". I have looked extensively over the past couple of weeks and was lucky to find that clear photo, as well as that store listing and one Ebay listing which sold a while back. On a side note, I found that 511 skinny leg (or a version, rather) seems to look the same, with the centered white patch and waist adjusters, but they too are hard to find. The 511's and 519's have a white patch that says, "Quality Never Goes Out of Style". There may be others as well.

      You may recognize these from the Moonbathing ads. They are part of the "Two Horse Brand" collection, which have a yellow and white patch and say "Two Horse Brand" on the patch. 506 and 511 look identical, while 509 has the addition of a cinch back. There might be other fit numbers I'm missing.
